Brush with fame/death

I didn’t see the scooter coming when I stepped off the curb last night, although, I admit I wasn’t really paying attention.

It was at the corner of 14th and University Place in Union Square.

I was running late for dinner.

I didn’t see any cars coming, so I stepped into the street.

As I crossed into traffic, I looked down at my phone to check the time.

Just then, the oncoming scooter beeped at me.

I stopped in my tracks and looked up just in time to see the man on the Vespa zoom past.

It was Mario Batali.
